Kyle Lowry Confirms He's Eventually Going Back to the Toronto Raptors

Miami Heat guard Kyle Lowry's heart is in Toronto and that's never going to change. The Raptors' franchise great opened up recently about his playing career and made it very clear he will be heading back to Toronto to retire.

Lowry isn't quite sure just yet when retirement will become reality but he knows he will be signing a one-day deal to retire as a Rap. He spoke to Marc Spears of The Undefeated and had this to say:

Like I've said, and I'll say it now, I will sign a one-day contract and I'll retire as a Toronto Raptor. That is my everything. I'm a man's man, but I know I'm going to be a little bit sensitive and crying that day. I don't know. I might hold it in. 've talked to (former Raptors teammate) DeMar (DeRozan) about it. But it's one of them days where I know it's going to be a lot of love for me and me giving love back, it's just going to be interesting how it goes down because I don't know what to expect.

Lowry admitted he still watches all the Raptors games and constantly texts with Fred Van Vleet and Pascal Siakam. He was a beloved teammate in Toronto so hearing about these lifelong friendships really shouldn't come as a surprise.

So far in his first season in Miami with the Heat, Lowry has posted 12.0 points per game, 4.9 rebounds and 7.6 assists. The 35-year-old is shooting 40.8% from the field including 30.9% from deep. The Heat currently sit at 11-6 on the season.
